Every time I look at myself in the mirror (which is often) I find more and more gray hair on my head. I guess being a parent can be stressful. I thought I would have it all figured out by now.
But It seems the more that time goes by, the more concerns, fear and questions I have... One that's been really plaguing me in particular: Do I show Max Episode I - The Phantom Menace first, or should I start him off with Episode IV - A New Hope?
Because I saw Episode IV first, It's almost impossible for me to even imagine what it would be like to start with Episode I. Should I ever get amnesia, on the back of my drivers licence there is explicit instructions to show me Episode's 1 through 6 before any medication or therapy is administered. And after that, if the medication and therapy doesn't work, I'll simply go back and read Corky's log from start to finish to reeducate by brain. But let's face it folks, I'll probably never get a golden opportunity like that.
I won't even entertain the other concerns I have, like what if my offspring prefers non-Jedi characters like Han Solo, and Lando Calrissian better than the likes of Obi-Wan, Mace Windu, Yoda, or Qui-Gon? I don't know if I could ever get past that... That's the kind of shit that would keep me up all day if I really stopped to think about it.
Allyson suggests starting our children off with Episode IV because of the surprise elements. She makes a good point. Plus, they would get a chance to see that Episode I, II, III are far superior to the crap that we had no choice but to see first.
From top to bottom, the Prequel Trilogy is superior in every way, better acting, better dialogue, better special affects, better writing, and much, much more focus on the Force.
And how much hotter is Padme than Leia? Could you imagine if Padme had lived, and you were over at Leia's house and saw her mom? "Princess, you're OK, but I really wanna bang your mom!"
Sorry for the tangent. So, have any of you had to face a problem of this magnitude before? How did you handle it, or how would you? What are your opinions? Any help here would be hot.
